Notre Dame Preparatory School & Marist Academy Reviews

I've absolutely loved my time at Notre Dame Prep. I've been here for seven years, from middle school through high school, and I have always been blessed with academic challenges. All of the teachers are very focused on making their respective subjects enjoyable and informative to us students. I believe that the extracurricular opportunities, such as clubs and athletics, are beyond what I could ask for. Overall, I have loved my seven years at NDPMA, and it will be a bittersweet ending to my student career when I graduate this coming May!

I really enjoyed my experience at NDP. I felt a new level of readiness not only for my college years ahead but a greater confidence in entering the world. NDP helped me become the best person I can be. Not everything is perfect, I would be concerned if people proclaimed that about a school. The classes were tough and there were maybe two teachers over my four years that I did not completely connect with. But, in the end, these experiences only further prepared me for college life which is filled with difficult professors and classes. When I started my freshman year the athletics were not a huge bragging part of the school, but since my graduation they have greatly improved and created very well-rounded students. I would recommend this school to any hard-working and motivated student.
During my time at Notre Dame Preparatory I was grateful to have grown as a student thanks to my teachers and all the staff. I made great friends in high school and had the opportunity to be part of a 5 time state championship team. I learned many skills that I still use today and will use forever. These skills including, but not limited to, leadership, motivation, communication, study, and social skills. I am truly grateful for such a wonderful high school experience.
